One Of Our Own

There's been a big hole lately here at RacingOne. Our faithful readers know something's been missing and we've tried our best to fill the gap but it's been a tough job.

Matt McLaughlin, who has been with Speed/FX and RacingOne since Day One, is on the injured reserve list. Matt's columns and observations have been out of action for a few weeks now as he sits in a hospital trying to get better.

You see Matt is one of those racing writers who lives up north. A few weeks ago, on his way to church he slipped on some ice outside his house as he was taking out the garbage. Faster than Jimmy Spencer at a buffet table, Matt went down hard on his leg. At first thinking it was only a sprain, the leg was severely injured and the next thing you know, Matt's in the hospital taking blood transfusions to save his leg.

A couple days ago, he gamely grabbed a nurse's computer and posted a note on the RacingOne message board to give us all an update. But he needs our help. Prayers and thoughts and kind words can go a long way to someone battling a mysterious illness so I ask you all for your support.

He'll hopefully be out of the hospital early next week and if you can, drop him a note:

Matt McLaughlin
301 Parkway, #209A
Broomall, PA 19008

I understand he'll be in a wheelchair for a while and I'm sure he'll be complaining about its aero push in no time. Until then, get well soon Matt. We miss you.
